9 REASONS TO TINT YOUR HOME
You've tinted the car... What about the house? Now you can also reap the benefits of window tinting in your biggest asset - your home!
Homeowners seek the benefits of window tinting on a daily basis, whether they realise it or not. Some close the blinds during the day to prevent the sun’s heat, harmful UV rays or glare; others turn down the air conditioner, despite comfort, to prevent a high energy bill. These concerns are among the many reasons homeowners consider investing in the professional installation of window tinting film.

Not only a good looking choice, window tinting is a great investment that offers these many sought-after benefits.
One of the most influential reasons to invest in residential window tinting is for the long-term savings on your home’s energy bill. With regular glass windows, the heat from the sun dramatically raises the temperature inside the home. In Winter, that heat easily escapes. By installing window tinting film, your home’s heating and cooling bill should reflect a decrease in price of around 30 percent, benefiting both your wallet and the environment. Window tinting is a fraction of the cost of solar panel installations and could see a much faster return on investment.
Warm in Winter… Cool in Summer. When the heat from the sun is reduced, your home becomes much more temperature-consistent from room to room. In a home without window tinting film, rooms are often of inconsistent temperatures due to the beating sun penetrating through the windows, despite your thermostat’s setting. Window tinting film helps create an even temperature throughout the home all day long—meaning no more unintentional “sun” rooms.
PROTECTION FROM THE SUN
Believe it or not, your furniture and interior of your home can cop a beating from our harsh Australian sun and high ultraviolet (UV). Window tinting film reduces 99 percent of UV rays, meaning added protection for you and your family and also preventing fading for your assets inside the home.
An additional measure of protection provided by window tinting film is its ability to deter or slow down an unwanted intruder. According to the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research there were more than 27,000 recorded break and enter in NSW in the 12 months to March 2018. Safety film that is installed to the interior or exterior of the window is often able to hold the glass in place longer when an intruder tries to gain entry by breaking through it. Since most window tinting specialists offer several variations of film options—prioritising safety, energy savings, decorative desires—it’s important to discuss any safety concerns during your consultation. Window film could significantly delay an intruders attempt to access your home or in some cases prevent it completely.
Window tinting film reflects the heat from the sun as well as the glare. Glare through traditional windows can have an impact on your productivity and comfort levels when working on your computer, watching television, reading, cooking, and doing other household activities and chores. In a window-tinted home, the glare is reflected, so you can continue sending that important email or watching your favourite show without the interruption from the sun’s glare.
SAFETY FROM GLASS BREAKAGE
Whether a window is broken by an attempted burglary, severe weather, a natural disaster or simply by a poorly-aimed football, window tinting films are able to hold the glass together so that it doesn’t shatter and spread across the room. This extra safety benefit keeps you and your family more protected from glass-related injuries.
An element of privacy from the outside world, especially when your home is located in a busy area or has a significant number of windows, can be achieved with window tinting film. The privacy of window tinting film is a desired comfort for many, giving you peace of mind that a neighbour or passerby is not able to peer in and see you and your family.
Window tinting film is water resistant and a scratch-resistant coating is available, making your home’s windows just as easy—if not easier—to clean. Different types of tinting films may require different cleaning methods, so be sure to follow the recommended instructions from your installation service.
